Kim Kardashian Announced as Season 4's First Guest Star!
We have our first "Drop Dead Diva" casting announcement for Season 4 and this guest star news is k-razy exciting! When "Diva" returns this Summer on Lifetime, none other than the gorgeous Kim Kardashian will join the cast for a multiple-episode arc (!!) starting with the season premiere. The Diva extraoidanaire Tweeted the announcement just moments ago, telling all the Twittersphere: "So excited to announce that I'll be guest starring on @DropDeadDiva Season 4 this summer!!" Hey, Kim? Yeah. Us too!!
So let's talk deets: on the Season 3 Finale, Jane caught Grayson and Stacy's misguided kiss. Yikes. Then, at the airport when Fred was all, "I'm going to propose to Stacy," Jane spilled the beans, crushing our angel's dreams of wedded bliss with his blonde boo. When Season 4 begins, we'll meet Kim Kardashian's character Nikki Fred’s new love interest (omg omg omg omg omg omg omg) who partners with Stacy in a new business venture (insert more omgs here).
"Drop Dead Diva" creator and executive producer Josh Berman reveals a little more about Kim and her character: "I'm ecstatic to welcome Kim to the Diva family. In discussing the role of Nikki with her, I'm blown away by her smarts, sense of humor, and passion. This series is all about reinvention and I'm so excited to see Kim 'reinvented' in the world of 'Drop Dead Diva.'"
Fellow "Diva" newbie Lex Medlin (aka Judge Owen) Tweeted his excitement and plans for reinvention too: "Holy Crap! Kim Kardashian is joining us on DDD for a few episodes. I better lose some weight." Oh, Lex, we love you just the way you are and are sure Kim will too ;) I'm not so sure her character on "Drop Dead Diva" Teri will be as welcoming, but star Margaret Cho Tweeted her support to Kim K, saying: "@kimkardashian super excited to have you on @dropdeaddiva welcome!"
I can't wait to fill all of the Divas in on what's coming up on the show! Believe it or not, this is only the beginning with the writers writing and the Season 4 to start filming in February. Stay tuned here for pics, videos, gossip and more from the set! And don't miss "Drop Dead Diva" on Facebook and Twitter.
